Veteran actor Anang Desai believes the favored tv serial Khichdi and his character Tulsidas Parekh, often known as Babuji within the present, gave him ‘a brand new identification’. In a brand new interview, he has spoken about his expertise engaged on the present.
Khichdi first went on air in 2002 and continued until 2004. A yr later, in 2005, it returned with its second season–Instant Khichdi. That too was a success.
Speaking to Indian Express, Anang stated: “When I began my journey on television, I got mostly positive roles. Then there was a phase when I did loads of negative roles. Then Khichdi happened and I received a lot of love. Post that I started getting comedy roles. Today, I’m known more in comic genre. Though I’m glad I got to do varied roles on television, but Khichdi gave me a new identity. I was already doing television, mostly serious roles.”
Calling director Aatish Kapadia’s direction brilliant, he continued, “One day, the show’s writer-director Aatish Kapadia and producer JD Majethia called me to offer Khichdi. They wanted me to hear the script of the first episode and then take a call. They were adamant that I do this role. Aatish’s narration is brilliant. It was so good, I was floored with its unusual concept. We hadn’t seen such kind of a show ever. Even if it was about the idiosyncrasies of a dysfunctional family, it had a logic. I instantly agreed. Khichdi became a blockbuster, a brand. You don’t get to do such roles often.”

The present was made right into a film of the identical identify and it was launched in 2010. The present stars Supriya Pathak, Vandana Pathak, Rajeev Mehta, Jamnadas Majethia, amongst a number of others. It revolved round a unusual Gujarati family–the Parekhs. Each member of the household had their very own idiosyncrasy.
